Per Yahoo finance: The auction of $27 billion of 7-year notes completed this week's sales of Treasury coupons, with all three auctions seeing solid demand. Solid demand huh? But when you check to see how many of those bonds were bought by foreign governments, the number is shocking. 2yr 68% 5yr 63% 7yr 67% So the foriegn governments are buying 2/3rd of our treasuries...Is it because they think interest rates of 1-3% are good returns(even though inflation is historically much higher than this? Do they think their own governments currency is going to drop against the dollar soon? Or are they so scared that the dollar will collapse, they are throwing money at us to keep us propped up until this crisis clears up?
